Know Tech is very unshow. the show, if you want to call it that, used to start with “we now join a conversation already in progress.” that was when it was MacBreak Tech. MBT was an experiment to see what worked when talking about heavy subjects. but we moved on and grew up. some things just didn’t work at all. like dropping advertising bombs in the middle of the conversation. it seems like the Tech part of our old shows name limited our audience. it was almost as if that word was code for “going to be boring.” We’ve shed ourselves of two words. this show, which will still be very unshow like, has a much friendlier 2 word name. nothing more. simple. Know Tech is the next phase. Know Tech is about tech that is interesting to us. we all use Macs so you'll hear about that. but you're more likely to hear things about 3D, Windows, Arduino, routers, networking and cameras. it's about what we are using, learning, breaking and fixing. you’ll hear some of the same people like Kenji, Ben Kristin and Craig. and some new names like Tom, Chris and maybe Kanen (formally known as the other John).

||3 Shot Pano||the 3-5 shot panorama is a really cool way to capture a scene. it's not really a pano but think of it as a S-U-P-E-R W-I-D-E picture as you aren't doing a full 360. you can take these with any camera. it doesn't have to be expensive.||1/16/11||Free||View In iTunes|

Great to have John Foster and others back!
John has been around Macs for quite a while and having an informative show like this is great. There's plenty of shows talking about Mac news, but this one is more hands-on and much more useful to the listener. Subscribe and enjoy!
I have truly missed John Foster, since Life Zero is sporadic (Mr. Flowers seems busy, when he posts to his blog), and I don't drink (so no Beer School for me), I loved the final MacBreak Tech, and am looking forward to more of this podcast (keep it up guys).
These guys are the very best - so glad you are back
I love this podcast. I followed "the other" and it was my favorite. I say that and I'm a MacPodcaster (technology podcaster). This is where I come to "Dive dive dive" deep into technology with no BS.
